SelvaBio Ceremonial Cacao
Ceremonial Cacao is the most organic and purest form of raw chocolate there is available.
Directly imported from Peru, and produced by the Ashaninka tribe, this cacao production maintains organic traditions that have been carefully conserved.
Uniquely original from our South American Amazon forests, our Ceremonial Cacao come directly from the Ashaninka tribe in Peru, a tribe that focuses in cultivating their cacao with the highest organic standards involving tradition, culture and quality.
Our Cacao is perfect for chocolatiers and chocolate lovers who understand the value of origin and the importance of sustaining and maintaining traditional approaches to the making of - which is why our Ceremonial Cacao has won us countless positive reviews to show for it.
SelvaBio compromises itself with sustaining a socio-environmental approach towards its products that enables the highest quality in organic whilst also taking care of the environment.
We sustain a strong relationship with our local campesino farmers in South America so they get a fair price for their crops, helping local farming families and allowing traditional farming and harvesting to continue, giving us the best in organic quality.
We use the word ‘campesino’ because we believe it has sacred connotations. In South America, a farmer isn’t just an ordinary person. A farmer is the land itself, the trees, the rivers, the soil. A farmer is the bridge to the nature we’ve distanced ourselves so much with. A farmer should be loved and appreciated and so the land will feel this too.
Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. A food supplement is not a proper substitute from a balanced and varied diet.
Store in a cool, dry place.
Keep away from the reach and sight of children as chunks could choke.
